Slow Food

The Slow Food Canada National Conference this year is being held in Osoyoos April 25-28th at the Watermark Beach Resort

Slow Food - Thompson Okanagan
Slow Food – Thompson Okanagan

This is our first direct involvement with Slow Food and we’re really looking forward to participating at the Market of Taste on Saturday April, 27th. Several local producers will be sampling their products which will range from farmersdotter Bread and Habanero Brittle to produce and seafood.

And speaking of seafood, we have it on good authority that if you search out the Oyster Man and ask him nicely for a sample of his spectacular chowder chances are you may also be treated to some Similkameen Sourdough Bread to scoop it up!

While at the conference we recommend visiting Harker’s Organics display. Harker’s have a wealth of knowledge on organics in the Okanagan and have been farming in the region for five generations and the sixth generation is almost tall enough to pick apples!

The following Saturday, May 4th, sees the opening of the annual Penticton Farmers Market, 8:30am until at least noon – 100 block main street Penticton, BC
